Our Staff

Get to Know the Roam Belize Staff

A company is only as good as its team members. At Roam Belize, we are proud to have assembled one of the finest teams of travel professionals in the country. Every member of our staff has years of experience in the industry and is proud to serve as an unofficial ambassador to Belize for visitors from around the world.

Julie Zelaya

One of the directors of the company, Julie helped Roam Belize get its start almost 10 years ago. Julie is a licensed tour guide and is happiest when she’s outside, exploring the beautiful sights and scenery of Belize. 

Today, Julie is our office manager, which means she doesn’t get out quite as often as she’d like. But she is standing by in the office to answer calls and emails in a fast and professional manner. 




Ian Avilez

Ian is our lead tour guide and an experienced chauffeur. Ian is Roam Belize’s right hand man, serving as both the staff manager and our in-house mechanic. With his years of experience, Ian is our go-to guy when anything goes wrong. Ian is an avid lifelong learner and is always striving to improve how we do business.






Blasio Ical

Blasio is a certified birder with over 20 years of experience in leading guided nature tours. Blasio is our resident expert on the animals and plants of Belize and has worked with several top luxury resorts in the country and is a proud member of the Belize Audobon Society.

Blasio is of Maya descent and speaks all three local Mayan dialects as well as English and Spanish, his experience and knowledge of the Mayan history and culture is superb.

Ricky Pereira

Ricky is an outgoing go-getter who is always ready with a joke and a big smile. Ricky is one of our most popular tour guides as his infectious energy and humorous anecdotes make the time fly right by. 







Kiovanni Estephan

Kiovanni is one of the newest additions to our staff, a young man who is learning to be a tour guide and shop mechanic. Kiovanni assists Ian in ensuring that all of our vans and rental vehicles are in tip-top shape. Kiovanni comes across as shy, but if you take the time to get to know him, he can be quite the chatterbox.






Lyle Gabourel

Lyle is the original rambling man. Whether it’s a bus, semi-truck, van, or car, Lyle has years of experience behind the wheel. Although Lyle primarily works in the vehicle service department, he also is responsible for dropping off cars to customers or meet & greet at the BZE airport.
